Austin City Limits 2008

The middle of September in central Texas. Football is the main focus on most peoples minds. It is usually still damn hot, but it is also time for one of the best musical festivals in the nation, the Austin City Limits Festival. In its seventh year, it shows no signs of slowing down, getting the greatest acts from around the world and showcasing the best of new and local music. Some of those on this years line-up are: Beck, Iron & Wine, G. Love, Band of Horse, Silversun Pickups, Black Keys, Okkervil River, Vampire Weekend, Philly's Man Man and so many more I cannot even list them. One thing that is difficult is knowing what, where and when things are going on. Some one stepped up and created an electronic scheduler. Click the bands you want to see and you can print out a personalized schedule. From past experience, the pamphlets they hand out with the line-up get very worn by the end of the first day or so or lost or water-logged, so they are almost useless after the first few hours. For those of you going, enjoy. Drink plenty of water, enjoy the local food and flavor, and rock out like no tomorrow.
